The Rascals get Glastonbury 2008 going early

The Rascals kicked things off early at Glastonbury tonight (June 26), playing a set the night before the festival officially gets under way.

The Wirral trio performed on the Left Field Stage ahead of their set on the Other Stage tomorrow (June 27).

Taking to the stage just after 6.30pm (BST), Miles Kane and co performed a brisk set to warm up the festival’s early arrivals.

The band performed a selection of tracks from their new debut album ‘Rascalize’, with the likes of ‘Out Of Dreams’ and ‘I’ll Give You Sympathy’ getting the packed big top tent pumping.

Ending on ‘Is It Too Late’, Kane told the crowd: “It’s just a short set today, we’ll have the full shebang tomorrow ten past 12 on the Other Stage!”

The Rascals played:


‘Out Of Dreams’

‘Bond Girl’

‘Freakbeat Phantom’

‘Stockings To Suits’
